Live Video Streaming/Virtual Classroom (Earth)

This technology allows remote participants to attend a live NTC class from their local office computer. Streaming provides much the same experience for students as sitting in the actual classroom. Remote students can see and hear the instructor, view presentation slides, and ask the instructor questions using a "chat" screen. When registering for your next NTC class, look for the designation, "Class Available Via Video Streaming."

This technology enabled room is available for groups of up to 10 to meet in a relaxed setting. This is not your usual meeting space! Comfortable seating makes this the perfect place for groups or teams to work together and consider the possibilities.

Solar Break Room

Affectionately known as the "recharge zone," this room offers a refrigerator, filtered water, two microwaves, snack and soda vending, and a Keurig® hot beverage dispenser. Have a seat at the coffee shop style tables and catch up on TV News or the Science Channel. Four "communication stations" with laptops, telephones, and printer allow you to stay in touch.
